LIACS MSc Education Committee

The main goal of the LIACS Masters Education Committee is to assess and provide oversight for the course evaluations from the students.  Specifically, we discuss the student evaluations of the courses and decide on comments to be given to the program directors and teachers as well as followup plans. The committee also provides advice and input into critical documents such as the OER.   In addition, we provide feedback from the students on various aspects at LIACS related to the teaching environment such as facilities, computer rooms, curriculums, etc.

The committee members are:
  • Michael Lew (staff, chair)
  • Erwin Bakker (staff)
  • Edwin van der Heide (staff)
  • Marco Echenique (student Master ICT in Business)
  • Ruben van der Waal (student Master Computer Science)
  • Vera Williams (student Master Media Technology)

Advisory committee member from the Leidsche Flesch: Lisanne van der Meulen

Secretary: Jose Visser,

Note that the staff members are appointed by the Faculty of Science and the student members are representatives for their program and confirmed by the Faculty of Science.
